I know as well as everyone else that 1-2-3-4-5-6 is supposed to have the same chance as 3-14-25-33-37-41,  ..so if you agree that this latter might yield more residual, why is that?  This is something I'm struggling to grasp. Could order of numbers be a factor as well?, because from what I have seen from history of 649, this seems to be a factor. Is it coincidence that better than 33.3% of the time that the fifth number is ALWAYS  39 or higher? or that the first number is ( quick estimate) 90% of the time under 15?....and I'm seeing the same patterns with all the numbers in between.      .. Just saying :)

    because peoples brains   order patterns. even when randomly  picking numbers, if we do it via our brain we will all pick similar numbers.

    123456 or 5 10 15 20 25 30, etc, are  bought more often than something truley random,

    ergo more winners IF those sets come up.

     

    here we had  div 1 winners get $6k ea when 5 10 15 etc hit.

    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

      When Texas first started a lottery, there was a man from S. Texas that bought several sets of numbers for a large jackpot and two sets of numbers on the ticket were identical.  The odds against that happening were exactly the same as winning the jackpot.
